A Hassle Of Bottles

Finished this group of bottles ….

I’ve finished the group of bottles on the left hand side of my copy of Edouard Manet’s painting “A Bar At The Folies Bergere”. There’s another group on the right of the picture to complete, but with fewer bottles and they’re mostly done, just some detailing to do. I feel like I’m getting near the end now. This is the first time I’ve tried painting a still-life and I’ve learned a lot, like, I shouldn’t faff so much. I was busting a gut to get lots of details in, but when I really look at Manet’s work, it’s quite rough. Because that’s what Impressionism was about, impressions, not details.

The bottles on the left.

Collective Noun?

There’s a bit of work to do around the bottom of the bottles, where they meet the marble counter, reflections, shadows and so on, but that’s it for this little lot. By the way, I found out that there isn’t a collective noun for bottles, I was looking for one for the title. So I thought, why not a Hassle of Bottles as it’s been a right hassle painting this lot 😀

A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the antique taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these vintage artifacts a modern twist by combining them with images of rubbish – old fruit nets, bubble wrap and plastic – highlighting the problem of human pollution and how it affects wildlife.

To buy my work on the Swansea Print Workshop site please click the image to the left.

20 percent of the cost of each screenprint sold goes to support Swansea Print Workshop, which receives no public funding.
